The late actress Audrey Hepburn, who died in 1993, left memorabilia including hats, scarves, jewellery, posters, costumes, photos, scripts and awards, which caused a dispute between her two sons, Sean Ferrer and his half-brother Luca Dotti who each wanted a tangible piece of their late mother.
Hepburn had left her sons a 50/50 cut of everything she had but no strict guidelines as to who received which items.
The two brothers attempted to mediate the case before going to trial.
The brothers both signed a memorabilia agreement which will divide the items between the two of them while they are still attempting to resolve remaining issues.
